We loved our lunch experience in Theoria's patio. The service was extremely attentive, the food elaborately prepared with fine ingredients, and the setting was magical.

Great restaurant. We only had time for lunch so we popped in and had the lunch set menu. The restaurant was surprisingly only half full. The duck breast carpaccio, suckling pig loin ala porchetta cotenna chips was good and didn't disappoint. Only downside was having...More

Don't know for sure but the setting is very formal. Too casual does not seem appropriate.

I TIGLI in THEORIA is in a historical building in the very heart of the city of Como next to the lake and the Dome, dating back to the mid 15th century. The restraunt I Tigli in Theoria offers menus designed to ensure an experience of high contemporary cuisine and at the same time designed to offer to the guests an unexpected path, but balanced and of quality. The wine list, with the competence and professionalism of the Sommelier, proposes a series of tastings, unique in its kind for the selection of fine wines and for the prestige of served beverages. The restaurant has four STUBE, private rooms where privacy is absolutely guaranteed, for customers who seek privacy in a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere of pathos and elegance. On the first floor there is a charming and sociable lounge bar, a pleasant atmosphere of refined elegance to spend time in complete relaxation.
